GET LAMP: Nick Montfort (at Trope Tank) (September 9, 2007)

Nick Montfort was one of the first people I contacted for GET LAMP, because he'd written "Twisty Little Passages: An Approach to Interactive Fiction", which was a lovely academic work on text adventures and especially Infocom. Over the years, a strong friendship developed and we brought together all sorts of interesting ideas and approaches to how the GET LAMP movie would be filmed and made. Nick has an amazing memory for facts and information, and he would often correct or remind me of clips I'd shot and how to integrate better and better ideas. He's an academic and I'm a documentary guy, so our approaches were different, but we came to respect each others' outlook.

I interviewed Nick three times - this is the primary one, where we sat down in his MIT office and I grilled him for hours about interactive fiction, Infocom, and a massive range of other related-sort-of topics that came to mind. He patiently let me ask him the same things over and over, and the result was this collection of clips.

This movie is part of the collection: The GET LAMP Interview Archives
